Crazy Credits

No robots were harmed in the making of this film. The filmmakers do not believe that robots are evil. They are good. Definitely good. Super super good. In fact, when the robot overlords take over we will be the first in line to bow at their benevolent feet. Or wheels -- or whatever. See more »

More PG13 than PG
23 September 2018 | by stess09See all my reviews

This movie wasn't bad. It clearly was a combo of other AI movies like IRobot, Big Hero Six, and Walle. We felt this movie was too graphic and violent for our kids 6 and under. There was a lot of destruction of property, name calling, and guns pointing at heads. By biggest issue was I didn't understand why the main character was so well loved by the robot. She was angry, mean, and destructive.
